PureMessage and Mail Servers

The PureMessage distribution includes both the Postfix and sendmail SMTP mail servers. See the Installation Guide for more information. In addition, PureMessage can integrate with existing Postfix, sendmail, Sendmail Switch, and JSMS installations.

Postfix

PureMessage can be configured to work with the Postfix mail server. A distribution of Postfix is included with PureMessage, and it is the the MTA installed by default during a "Full Installation" of PureMessage. Alternatively, PureMessage can be configured to work with an existing Postfix installation. PureMessage communicates with the policy engine in PureMessage by using PureMessage as an SMTP proxy. See "Configuring an External Postfix Installation" in the Installation Guide for more information.

Sendmail

PureMessage works in conjunction with either the open source version of sendmail or the commercial version, Sendmail Switch. A distribution of sendmail is included with PureMessage. Alternatively, PureMessage can be configured to work with an existing sendmail or Sendmail Switch installation. PureMessage communicates with sendmail via the Milter (Policy) service. Refer to the Installation Guide for information on installing the PureMessage distribution of sendmail, or configuring PureMessage to work with an existing sendmail or Sendmail Switch installation.

If you are using the distribution of sendmail included with PureMessage, the sendmail documentation is available via the "Documentation for Related Applications" section of the Administrator's Reference. Otherwise, refer to the sendmail or Sendmail Switch documentation included with your installation.

Oracle Communications Messaging Exchange Server

PureMessage can be configured to work with the Oracle Communications Messaging Exchange Server mail transfer agent. This MTA is supported on Solaris only.
